About the brainstorming meeting template

Product teams rely on creative thinking to solve challenges — from exploring bold new ideas to optimizing team processes. Brainstorming together can help you tap into the group's insights and identify potential solutions faster.

This note template is ideal for planning and leading a brainstorming meeting. Its simple layout makes it easy to set objectives, record notes, and align on next steps. You can also embed a whiteboard directly in the note to give you a creative space to visualize your ideas during the meeting. Choose from layouts like the brainstorming board, mind map, or SWOT analysis to encourage participation.

As you wrap up your brainstorming meeting, decide on next steps. And if you know an idea is aligned with your strategic direction, go ahead and convert it into real work in Aha! Roadmaps.
